From the 1 year old to the 28 year old, the males in my home get pretty excited about doing two activities- building things and tearing stuff apart! Even Ezra, who just turned one, LOVES to destroy all kinds of things like towers, stacked blocks, and anything else his brothers might have created. But, he’s also starting to learn how fun it can be to make things just like his older brothers do, especially those things that can later be torn apart. For this reason, Mega Bloks First Builders have always been a staple in our house (for real, we have a huge large trashcan-sized laundry bag filled to the brim with them!). Although we’ve collected multiple sets throughout the last 4 years, the new Mega Bloks First Builders™ Fast Tracks™ Raceway is their favorite so far.
The Fast Tracks set comes with the traditional Mega Bloks First Builders blocks, but also has lots of goodies that make it a huge hit with three little boys that not only love building and destroying, but also cars of any type. In the set were stickers of crowd people and racing parts, 4 track pieces, flags, and 2 fun cars that were perfectly sized for little hands. It was everything they needed for lots of high-speed racing fun!
The boys’ favorite part of the Fast Tracks Raceway is definitely the racecars. Aside from the fact that they’re the perfect size for their hands (ideal for ages 1-5 years), they realized that the cars come apart and the colors can be interchanged. They loved them so much that even when we were done playing with the Mega Bloks, the boys brought them on our grocery shopping trip and drove them over every store surface they could get their hands on, hehe!
The tracks were nice and sturdy, and easily snap together and come apart to be made into different racing configurations. With over 50 pieces included in the set, there were lots of possible racetrack options. It was a great way to get the boys thinking and understanding about physics and motion at their developmental level, and also perfect for Reese to practice cause and effect, all while helping out with his fine motor skills. To make it even better, the Fast Tracks Raceway bloks fit perfectly with the rest of our First Builders sets, and the fun can continue in a much bigger scale. Just like the other sets, all of the First Builders bloks are over-sized and easily snap together and tear apart so that even Ezra can engage in building and destroying on his own!
